Hahnemuhle 140# half sheet
Anyway here’s the photo.
Margaret done for the day. xoxoxox hoping she will get this one painted and then finish the Atlanta one. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻
I left the house with $20 in cash in my pocket. by the time I went to pay for my items it was gone. No check and they do not take credit cards which I had plenty of.
A very kind man paid for mine when I told the lady I would run back to the house and find it or a check. Wow!! Thanks mystery man. His story is the pencil writing in the background. Had to commemorate the event.
Anyway Stillman and Birn Epsilon or hmm is it a Beta? heavy paper compared to the Alpha that I usually use. Uniball micro pen. American Journey watercolors.
Yes I drew it with a pencil first. The oval then all the words then the leaves, tendrils and dots. I had to be sure the ink was dry before I erased it or it would smear.
Then I splattered it with clear water because I thought it looked a little drab. I think splattered some tea too.
Margaret whose painting is not going well. Xoxoxox
This one is made with cerulean with a bit of dioxzine purple mixed in. Once I ran the wash I added very diluted yellow ochre, neutral tint and alizarin mixed w a dab or dioxzine purple here and there.
I let it sit til the sheen went off the wash and splattered it with water. Not enough obviously.
I will probably use this one on my fox painting.
Maybe tomorrow I will try out some buildings on it. Ultimate procrastinator now, aren’t I?
Love these Ten Commandments from Danny Gregory!
Here are the ten commandments:
I. Thou shall not be afraid of making things.
II. Thou shall not erase. Well, not too often.
III. Thou ought to keep a journal of your life and draw the stuff that strikes you as cool and make little notes next to it and stuff.
IV. Thou shall not not play around.
V. Thou shall not covet they neighbor’s art work as thine own.
VI. Thou shall remind other people that they can draw even if they think they can’t.
VII. Thou shall not judge too harshly.
VIII. I 8 a dead horse.
IX. Thou shall draw on the Sabbath, but not only on the Sabbath.
X. Thou shall not make lists with more than IX things in them.
Margaret xoxoxox who needs to follow them. Been a little slack lately but I did get my art supplies straightened out. Yeah.
Well maybe …in the gates but waiting for the race to start. Hoping not to be an also ran.
Can I just call this done?!
This is my primary picture I am using. I have a ton of photos of the Fox. I snap them when traffic backs up at the light or just put the phone on the dash and take a surreptitious pic or two.
Try upside down. You will see it works.
On another subject. New cat on the back porch. Eeek. Worse my cats who are bigger than it are afraid of it and run when it tries to eat their food. Dummies don’t know they are suppose to run it off. Sigh.
I actually like this so far. The morning will tell. Paint along with Vladislav Yesileyev
Yellow ochre cobalt and alizarin This layer will eventually disappear or appear to be white.
Margaret ready for a nap after four hours of madly chasing after Vlad today. Eeek.
That boat in the middle. Thought I would never get it drawn. Right now it’s done but who knows when i look on the am?!
If the drawings not right you can’t start painting.
Hugs Margaret xoxoxo looking at a busy day tomorrow.
Portweir Lock Essex Sussex UK I do think the beach should be greyer. Any easy fix of I add blue to it. Either cerulean or cobalt should do the trick.
That rusty colored burnt Sienna beach doesn’t do a thing for me. bet it’s going to get changed soon!!
Margaret who might just gesso over this one. Xoxoxox
I added some more darks. The shadows on the top right of the building- the third story?! Under the roof line and the left side of it. I also added some darks to all the windows and the thing that looks like a garage door.
Now if I could just get rid of that red smear but oh well. Short of adding a dog or a person that’s not happening. Well not today.
